As we age, most areas of the body sag. The forehead is not immune. Unfortunately, everyone sees the results of that sagging every day. That’s where comments such as “Boy, you look tired.” and “Are you mad about something?” come up. As that skin on your forehead drops downward it can give the impression that you’re either really tired or angry.
Sounds like a forehead lift with Dr. Lavey is in order.
Most people think of the procedure as a brow lift, but a brow lift really only targets the eyebrow area and it can create a perpetually surprised look if done poorly. Dr. Lavey prefers to lift the entire forehead for a more natural, youthful look.
What does a forehead lift accomplish?
A forehead has benefits beyond making you look younger. It:
- Reduces horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Reduces crow’s feet
- Elevates the shape and position of the eyebrows
- Reduces scowl wrinkles between the eyebrows
- Can correct a receding hairline
Forehead lift techniques
Dr. Lavey employs three different techniques in his forehead lift procedures.
Traditional — This method makes a scar from ear to ear at the hairline. This allows the most aggressive improvements in that angry look.
Endoscopic — This method only requires five small incisions where the endoscope is inserted. The endoscope allows Dr. Lavey to see and manipulate the muscle and tissue without the need for the traditional long incision.
Slide — This method, designed by Dr. Lavey, combines both the traditional and endoscopic methods into a single hybrid procedure.
